Phil Robertson

Churchgoer Sues A&E

They're Screwing With My Right to Hate!

A self-proclaimed member of Phil Robertson's church is literally making a federal case over Phil's suspension ... he's suing A&E and others because he feels the network is chilling his right to hate homosexuals.

Chris Sevier, who claims to be a lawyer, has previously sued pretty much everyone under the sun, including Bill O'Reilly, CBS, Facebook and Apple. 

This time around, Sevier has put together 91 pages of law and religious propaganda, quoting scriptures about the evils of homosexuality.  Sevier claims the fact that A&E has indefinitely suspended Phil is going to have a chilling effect on other churchgoers -- himself included -- when it comes to preaching what he believes is the word of God.

As for what that word is ... Sevier thinks it's rooted in sin.  He says, if gay marriage is allowed, "citizens in that state should be able to marry their pets" -- he sees no difference.

In addition to suing A&E ... Sevier is suing President Obama, claiming the Prez is in cahoots with A&E to further the pro-gay agenda. 

At one point in the rambling lawsuit, which Sevier says will be filed today, he says, "We live in a Christian nation 'Jack.'"

One final thing ... take a look at some of the pictures Sevier sprinkled in the suit.  We don't know the rhetorical point he's making, but they're hilarious.

We can disagree without me hating you. Sounds to me it's you guys spreading propaganda which only stands to further divide. Hypocrisy?

I agree if the defination of marriage has changed to accomodate gays then it should also change to accomodate polygamy and those who want to marry their pets....we don't ask our pets if they want to be used as seeing eye dogs or horse racing or police dogs or anything else so a man should be allowed to marry 10 women and 2 dogs plus 3 horses..if not then he is being that's discrimination

What are people who believe that the bible states that homosexuality is a sin supposed to do?
Are you asking them to reinterpret their bible ?
Are you going to blacklist them all if they say their beliefs? Are you asking them to follow some sort of “don't ask don't tell” policy if they want to keep their jobs?

Gay behavior has existed in human society since humanity began to walk upright and probably before. Gay people are simply a part of "people" and this question makes no more sense than asking where left-handed people came from.

Oh and I forgot Charlie Sheen is a major douchebag, right? That old wrung out meth head. How date he call Denise Richards an old hag. She is right to keep girls away from him but she probably wants a drama free holiday without the meth head and his backup "goddesses." Come after me Charlie, I'd chew you up and spit you out.

Who wrote this crap?? Phil never said he hated anyone. You twist his words to try to further your agenda. You are the ones spreading hatred and bigotry. Just because someone thinks a dude humping another dude is unethical you call him a hater. Bull****! This sorry POS reporter ought to be fired because he blatantly lied. Did you even read the article or are you just going by what youve heard?

Why in the **** is it so hard to these idiots to understand that he is more than welcome to spread his hate speech? And the network is more than welcome to say his hate speech don't align with their values. The first amendment doesn't give you the right to a reality show. It gives you the right to not be imprisoned by the government for saying stupid ****.

It amazes me we are ignorant and bigots for believing in GODs WORD...If yall dont remember let me remind you GOD is NOT of this WORLD! Dont PAINT an ugly picture of Phil when he is only speaking THE TRUTH!
1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.
2 Corinthians 4:4 The god who rules this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers. They cannot see the light, which is the good news about our glorious Christ, who shows what God is like.
